Angry Steam under linux

Hello ive seen in a howto from linux-gamers that steam finally works under wine.. i tried it , just for steam I created a Win Partition with steam on it, and mount it on /mnt/win.. works fine and I configured wine with winesetup.

i can easely run solitaire and hl. but when trying to run steam it tells me that it failed to load the Steam.dll library..

any ideas ?
